I love books
Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton is so amazing I wrote my
college entrance paper on it. I've read mountains of books, and
will be continuing to do so as long as I live. Last year I did a
52/52 challenge (52 books in 52 weeks) and ended up with, I think,
68 books in 52 weeks (even though I kinda gave up around Nov).
I specifically like fiction, leaning towards historical and
sci-fi/fantasy along with the occasional mystery and romance.
Classics take up a huge part of my bookshelf, as do contemporary
writers, classic poets, and young adult authors.
I really like all kinds of movies. Comedies, action, shoot-em-up,
chick flicks, science fiction... I'm on a quest to find a horror movie
will scare me. Bring it on!!
As for TV, I don't watch a lot of it - I prefer to watch seasons of
shows online: Supernatural, Avatar, Bones, Criminal Minds, How I
Met Your Mother, Chuck, MLP, NCIS, Lie to Me, The IT Crowd, CSI,
Warehouse 13, Awkward, Castle, Ouran, Once Upon a Time, Haven,
Downton Abby, Sherlock... yeah. Lately I've been really into Korean
Dramas like You're Beautiful, City Hunter, Shining Inheritance,
Protect the Boss, Boys Over Flowers, You're the Best Lee Soon Shin,
and so many more...
I am totally enamored with music
. I am a classically trained oboist,
and have been playing for about ten years. I can play most woodwind
instruments (though I've only taught oboe and alto/tenor sax), a
few scales on a few brass instruments, a bit of piano, and a little
bit of guitar, bass guitar, and violin. This really isn't all that
odd, seeing as I spent the majority of the past ten years in one
orchestra or another. Or at band camp.
Though I have a lot of classical music, I love all kinds of music,
by all kinds of artists. I especially love listening to John
Williams or Hans Zimmer on Pandora whenever I have to do something
seemingly boring. That quickly turns into epic dishwashing
adventures. I also like listening to other people's favorite music-
recently on a road trip with my cousin I enjoyed her eclectic mix
of screamo, disney, and country.
Since Netflix led me to Korean dramas I've been listening to a lot
of Korean music; Big Bang, Shinee, EXO, 2NE1, Block B, BAP, DBSK,
SNDS, 2PM, BTS, GOT7, ... uh, all of it. But I'm not obsessive. I
swear. ((Also, I'm a terrible liar.))
